Adhuna miffed with Farhan, Aditi's sex scene in 'Wazir'

Bollywood actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar and hair stylist Adhuna Bhabani ended their 16 year marriage by issuing a joint statement. Speculations about their rocky marriage have been doing the rounds for some years now. Industry insiders described their announcement as a formal burial of a long-dead relationship.

The breaking point of the couple’s already cracked marriage is said to be a steamy lovemaking scene between Farhan Akhtar and Aditi Rao Hydari in the recently released movie Wazir.

 "The cracks began in 2011 when Farhan got involved with an assistant director while shooting ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’. Then, on the sets of ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’, every crew member was talking about his dalliance with a co-star... Adhuna was getting fed up... I think eventually with ‘Wazir’ she threw in the towel," a director on condition of anonymity was quoted by a popular regional daily.

Gossip mills were on overdrive about Farhan-Adhuna’s separation ever since the lovemaking scene in ‘Wazir’ was shot some months ago. "The scene was so sensuous and passionate that the filmmakers, including producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, thought it would be appropriate to chop it at the editing table... it was not the censor board which ran its scissors over the scene. There was some discomfort with the scene," the daily quoted a source as saying.

Adhuna stopped accompanying Farhan to public events after this. She was not there at the Wazir premiere or success party earlier this month. Then she was not there with Farhan at Hrithik Roshan's birthday on January 10 - Adhuna and Farhan are very close friends of Hrithik. She was also absent at Dabboo Ratnani's calendar launch party where the who's who of Bollywood descend, the source added.

Farhan met Adhuna, six years his senior in 1997 and the duo got married in 2000 after three years of a live-in relationship. The couple is blessed with two daughters – Shakya and Akira. Farhan launched Adhuna as a Bollywood hair stylist in his cult film ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ in 2001.

Adhuna is Farhan's second wife. He was previously in a much-talked-about affair with starlet Suman Ranganathan which ended in 1995. Thereafter, he had a brief marriage with Riya Jain.
